I recently received an e-mail containing a collection of definitions for the term “food literacy.”

I read through them with interest because I’d been thinking about that phrase ever since taking a food literacy quiz and getting three of the answers wrong. I like to think I’m pretty food literate, so my ego might have been slightly bruised.

E & P: Those letters about hospital need to cover new ground

Letters to the editor are understandably a well-read part of any newspaper. After all, they represent the direct voices of readers, unfiltered except by judicious editing if the newspaper is doing its job.

Coastal Voices: Del Norte must explore alternatives to Sutter Health

I recently reviewed the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) that Sutter Coast Hospital is required to do.

It is very informative and I hope members of the community, the current Sutter Coast Hospital local Board members and the members of the recently disbanded Steering Committee who voted for Critical access and Regionalization take a good look at it.

Did you know? Wondering how far our 'civil rights' can be taken

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. As a college student at the time, I was heavily involved in the free speech movement on the campus at San Francisco State University while many of my friends had volunteered to participate in the civil rights struggles in Mississippi.

We were fighting racial and ethnic discrimination that was practiced against minorities.  We were the innocent children of the ’50s who became the activists of the ’60s.

Church Notebook: Former Oceanview Baptist Church pastor dies

Evangelist sets events starting Sunday at the Redwoods Family Worship Center

He had said he was “ready to go home” some time ago as his health deteriorated.

He had retired as pastor of Oceanview Baptist Church several years ago and moved to Stockton to be near his daughter, frequently coming back to Crescent City to visit those of us who had been members of his church.

House Calls: Getting to the hospital now a little easier

House Calls runs every two weeks. Today’s column is written by Jeff Gustafson, director of facilities at Sutter Coast Hospital.

Sutter Health has invested $800,000 in Sutter Coast Hospital’s “Path-of-Travel” changes and upgrades to our hospital over the past year.

Coastal Voices: Asante Health would not be a good fit for the North Coast

The Jan. 28 edition of The Triplicate contained two letters, raising some points again about the future of the hospital and expressing the desire to see Asante or some other hospital company here to guarantee “full service.”

As readers may recall, I was one of three physicians who joined the steering committee for the Camden Group study. The Camden Group went to great lengths to explore the proposal of transferring affiliation of the hospital to a different corporation.

Coastal Voices: Big Rock Service District survey was done properly

I’m replying to an article written by Jessica Cejnar, entitled “Supervisors defer issue of new state,” that appeared in the Triplicate on Jan. 16.  

She paraphrased comments made by Supervisor Martha McClure at a meeting of the Board of Supervisors, where McClure “spoke out against a survey the Big Rock CSD (Hiouchi) sent to its customers” regarding the Jefferson state initiative.

Coastal Voices: Valentine’s weekend could be another Thanksgiving Day

I guess you can say I am a new mom. I had my daughter last August but have helped raise my step-daughter since she was just a few days old and that was December 2010.

I have always heard the love of a mother was a rare one and now I understand. I knew right away the moment I looked into my baby’s beautiful brown eyes that I was the luckiest mom in the whole world. And because of this new found love I have a new appreciation for every day, every holiday.

Artisan Cuisine is published monthly.

A couple weeks ago I noticed one of my Facebook friends talking about the extra 40 pounds of walnuts she’d collected from her tree and how she hated to see them go to waste.

I immediately wrote her and offered a trade. Some of my handmade chocolates for a big box of walnuts was the deal.
